Lands End Hill Climb was last weekend and it was a total blast as usual. I got another win in the motorbike class and put the bug on the podium with a respectable 3rd place in Rally 2WD class behind a BMW stage rally winner and A Porsche GT3. But on my last run 3rd gear left the party and by the time I got back to the trailer my little engine oil consumption issue had developed into a full blown oil burning smoke show. I sure cannot complain for two and a half years of racing on a $100 transmission I got from Alykat and a 160K mile Subaru engine I got out of a $400 dollar car that I sold for $500 after I pulled the engine out. Now, can I get so lucky to replace them again so easily…NewboldParticipantJuly 27, 2023 at 11:46 amPost count: 176NewboldParticipantJune 2, 2023 at 8:54 amPost count: 176NewboldParticipantMay 31, 2023 at 12:36 pmPost count: 176NewboldParticipantApril 18, 2023 at 2:04 pmPost count: 176

That beast looks pretty bad ass Ben!!
I bet you would dig flying John. So much concentration and such a rush. I probably had more fun with cars, especially when I had a proper track in my back yard but for me it was for sure more reckless whiskey throttle checkers or wreckers fun compared to the more sober exacting precision needed for flying. I crashed (totaled) at least a dozen plains in 3 or 4 years before I hung up my transmitter. I wasn’t mature enough yet and the balsa wrecks were epic sad but I still dream about getting back into it. I think I am waiting for a racing related injury to give me a forced break from racing to make it happen. Hopefully not a very bad injury though 🙂 Just something that makes time. Good ol time.NewboldParticipantFebruary 7, 2023 at 12:32 pmPost count: 176NewboldParticipantFebruary 6, 2023 at 12:40 pmPost count: 176NewboldParticipantJanuary 13, 2023 at 9:24 amPost count: 176NewboldParticipantJanuary 2, 2023 at 7:07 pmPost count: 176NewboldParticipantDecember 17, 2022 at 4:36 pmPost count: 176NewboldParticipantDecember 8, 2022 at 9:22 amPost count: 176
